A PERFECT MEET
Aside from the gratification of
Michigan's victory last Saturday in
herthirteenth annual meet with Cor-
nell, the contest was pronounced by
officials one of the most efficiently !
handled meets' ever held. From thel
first shot of the pistol to the conclu-
sion of the pole vault the program!
was marked by precision and formal-:
ity which neither permitted the wast-
ing of time nor allowed for disorderly
handling of the equipment.
tUnder the competent supervision of
the Varsity track manager, this sea-
son's meet with the Ithacans was
marked by a formal coloring and dig-
nity which added muchk to the effec-
tiveness of the event. The presence
of such great track officials as Major
John L. Griffith, commissioner of in-
lercollegiate conference athletics as
referee, Charles Lynch as track
judge, and Harry Steffe u announcer,
in formal attire also helped to createl
the atmosphere which made this par-
ticular meet so successful. Added toy
this was an innovation iu the form of
an eight page program containing a
complete summary of Michigan'sl
track relations with Cornell and a
systematic plan for recording the re-
suits of the various events.
A glorious victory combined with
perfect management thus -character-
ized what was the last track meet
to be held in Waterman gymansium,
for its time-honored walls will soon,
be deserted for the new Field house,

"BREF4AD AND BUTTER. CONCERN"
(New York Times)
The business men had their say a
few days ago about the interdepen-
dence of the nations 'economically. No
one is sufficient - unto itself. The
churches have 'spoken vigorously re-
garding international moral obliga-
tions. Now the voice of the farmerI
rises asbove the chorus to carry the
theme to a still wider harmony. The
editor of Farm and Fireside in a.
special article in his own paper says
that what Europe does is of "bread-
and-butter concern" to every citizen
Sin'America and ",most of all to the;
farmer." And it is on this basis that
he makes an appeal to the govern-
ment of the strongest nation in the
world "financially, politically and
morally" not to, stand aloof but to
lend a hand.
'His specific advice is to open the
door which we have "slammed" in
the face of' the peoples overseas who
have fallen upon evil days. We may i
think that we have nothing to do!
with them, but they could do for us
what no one else can, if only we had
not in our "high and mighty ways"
made it impossible for them -"to help
us out of the fool's paradise into
which we have gole to' live." We are
deluding ourselves with a temporary
display of prosperity, but this, the
editor-farmer insists, is at the ex-
pense of our own farmers and our
European neighbors. The farms are
prcducing more than the farmer can
profitably raise and yet great masses
of men, women a.nd children in Con-
tinental Europe are 'not getting
enough to eat. If the American farm-
er could sell his' surplus abroad,' he
himself would be financially blessed
while, at the same time, feeding the
hungry and ,starving. The observa-
tion of this editor who speaks to and
for farmers, that we are '"acting like
a nation of children in handling the
serious international situation," does
not seem too severe.
"'Let the government take heed,"
says the editor' of Farm and Fireside,
and not lag far behind the business
men and the farmers who are coming
to the view that we cannot profitably
live to ourselves alone, even if we had
no moral obligations to do something
for others. There are signs that the
